 Welcome to NOR!

I replaced one of my boots on my Fronty a while back.  Wasn't THAT difficult, just took some time.  Consider getting a Haynes or Chiltons manual.  They're a great investment!

thank you NOR for causing me to throw thousands of my hard earned dollars into a cheap little truck that isnt worth half the money i put into it, making me break parts on it, and having me spend countless nights in the garage trying to fix it... I've loved everyt minute of it Big Smile

Less that $200 ? did you just get the boot or a new CV-joint/shaft ?
A boot change shode be cheap like $50 boot only needed !

If you got the CV-joint you may have to lossen the torsion bar (unloading the spring) all the way or you may fell some pain... And as you are right there go on ahead and replace the bearing at the same time. I have done the replacement of the thing CV-joint and half shaft bearing and ball joints before my rodeo 3 time before. saling it off for my jeep. Your Nissan is set up about the same way as the Rodeo.
